Have this strange rifle with snider-system but produced in Malmö, Sweden. Because of Denmarks interest in Snider-system before they took their 1867 Rolling block I am dreaming this could have been a rifle competing for the contract in Denmark? What do you all think?

Don't know but I want one. I have four different types of Sniders but they are all of the British Enfield types. That one is nice. I guess the only downside is the rimfire caliber. I load for .577 Snider and have a blast (pun intended) with then on the range. Most people won't shoot them when I offer?

Arilar,
What a wonderful find!
It could very well have been made for the Danes. Although whoever designed it had lots of ideas himself as it does not look to much like a direct copy of the Sniders they were already using.
Do you have some pictures of the top of the breech and one with the breech open?

Best, John

Hello Arilar!
Beautiful rifle, I remeber this one! nice to se actual pic's of the rifle!
You have to shoot this in our new 50m offhand dicipline! :D
I think I can machine some reloadable rimfire cases for you to make the old one bark!
